I had icehouse installed on my CentOS and now I'm debugging an issue in nova. The nova service are all in down state in the output of "nova service list" and it looks that the nova-api could not talk with nova-compute. Is there any way to diagnostic the message exchanged between nova-api and nova-compute? I am not able to find any tool to monitor this. I use the default rabbit mq.

any help is appreciated.

after a night of investigation, I figured out the root cause. It was caused by rabbitmq which blocked all message publishing due to the database space limit.

=WARNING REPORT==== 5-Jan-2015::09:20:03 ===
disk resource limit alarm set on node 'rabbit@ngncloud-controller'.

*** Publishers will be blocked until this alarm clears ***

rabbitmq provides a management plugin which can be used to view the queue status and other statistics. It's easy to set up but requires me to add iptables rule for allowing port 15672 manually, to make the web interface work.

hope this would be helpful for others.
